Your baby has been raised learning to drink from a Drinkwell Fountain with bottled water. The Drinkwell has a free falling stream of water and charcoal filter, which removes bad tastes and odors, encouraging the cats/kittens to drink more water, therefore promoting better health.
While most people are aware of the human benefits of drinking enough water each day, many likely overlook the intake needs of their pets. Water is an essential element for both humans and pets alike, yet getting enough H2O can be challenging especially for our furry friends that prefer free-falling water to stagnant water in a traditional feeding bowl. As a caring pet owner, there is a solution to better ensure the proper hydration of your pet - itís Drinkwell The Original Pet Fountain.
Drinkwell The Original Pet Fountain satisfies a petís preference for running water and need for proper hydration, while also serving as a convenience product for owners.

When you pick up your new kitten(s), you will receive a scratching pad from Cat Claws. Special glands in your cat's paw pads release a scent during scratching, so scratching makes home smell like home! Your own home, your workplace, your parents' home, your neighbor's home, EVERY home has its own scent, and even we humans can tell the difference from house to house. Cats have a sense of smell that is far superior to ours! Your cat LOVES the comforting, familiar smell of his own scent throughout his home. Two purposes are served here: (1) a cat's feelings of well-being and security are reinforced, and (2) your cat's place in this world is fortified against intruders! Scratching is a cats natural instinct, but your baby has been trained to use these scratching pads from the time they leave their birthing box. They offer, toys, supplies, posts, and trees. Our cats and kittens love when the UPS man shows up at the door with a box from Cat Claws, and so will you!

Litter Box and Litter
Clay and chemical free.
Unlike many scoopable litters, Swheat Scoop litter contains no silica dust, sodium bentonite, chemicals or flowery fragrances. Which is good news for your cat and you.
Swheat Scoop litter is safe and non-toxic for cats and kittens, as well as other household pets. The granules can be licked during grooming or digested without serious health consequences.
Soft on sensitive paws.
For cats and kittens with tender paws, Swheat Scoop litter is a softer choice than many clay or pelleted litters. In fact, itís so gentle, itís even recommended by veterinarians for newly declawed cats.
Cats are creatures of habit, and can be apprehensive when they encounter a different litter. But they find it easy to get used to Swheat Scoop litter because it looks and feels like conventional litter.
Your kitten has been taught to use Swheat Scoop Natural Wheat cat litter. Swheat Scoop is made from naturally processed wheat, which means it is clay free, chemical free, frangrance free, and biodegradable. It clumps firmly for east scooping, low dust, less tracking, and is safe for kittens.
StudiProducts Cat Carrier
Petsmate Hard Sided Cat Carrier
When you pick up your kitten, don't forgot your cat carrier. There are many styles available whether you prefer the soft sherpa carrier, a soft studi cage carrier, or the hard case which is pictured above. This protects your kitten while driving, and when traveling to your friendly veterinarians office.
Cat Post and Cat Tree
Even though your kitten spends a large part of his/her day napping, it is important to have plenty of toys and furniture for them to play and sleep on. Just as we have our favorite chair to sleep on, a cat loves to have a high place to take a snooze. Toys keep you cat/kittens stimulated and keep the playful side of your Ragdoll, ready for fun! These are just a few of the many toys that are available for your cat/kitten to play with. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us for our recommendations.
Over 20 million pets are lost every year. A registered microchip gives a pet the very best chance of a safe return home. The microchip is a lifetime insurance that almost guarantees the pet will not be euthanized or put up for adoption, if he/she is lost.
Microchip recovery networks handle well over 1000 recovery calls every day and are responsible for the safe return of millions of pets. We microchip all of our cats. We believe that in the event of accidental loss or natural disaster (like hurricane Katrina), you stand the best chance of reuniting quickly with your beloved family member.
As a service upon request, we can have your kitten microchiped for you, and provide you with the paperwork to enroll them in Avids Pet Track recovery program. Please contact us for further information or any questions that you may have regarding this program.
